Acer Aspire 5100-3123 laptop memory upgrade

I tried to upgrade the memory of my laptop. I opened the smaller cover at the bottom of the laptop but there is another metal cover that I don't know how to remove. Can you show me how to do it?

Thats unusual, you should try another cover as normally when you remove the panel the memory on an ACER laptop is accessible by just removing the panel.

I'm trying to open up an Aspire 5516 and I have all the screws out I think but it won't open up.

Go to Youtube and search under Acer 5516 cpu upgrade. There is a video showing you how to open an Acer 5516.

After you take out all the screws on the bottom. You still have to take off the keyboard, the display screen, the battery, the memory, the harddrive, the dvd drive, and the modem.

I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get cover openbehi

The ram is under a base cover and the cover is usually indicated by small rectangles imprinted in the plastic. I will send you the link to the service manual that will show everything you need to know about your laptop.
The ram, wireless card, heat-sink and processor are all under the largest of the panels. The smaller panel is where the hard drive lives and then there is the battery.

Acer Aspire RAM

There are 4 screws holding the cover on the bottom of the computer that allows access to the RAM modules. (This is the same cover that also covers the fan. The same cover with the ventilation slots.)

Simply remove the screws and lift the cover by the indent to the right of the battery lock.

How to change add RAM to Acer Aspire

first check with to see that expansion is possible.

all computers like their memory upgrades in sets, instead of singles(like changing both front tires on your car or truck) compatibility among the two is more vital than matching to existing ram cards.

The memory cover is on the bottom of the laptop it is held in place with a screw or/screws, and may or may not have small holding tabs which keep the cover in place. when you remove the screw pop the cover off the bottom of the laptop and you will find your memory located there. BPCS
